UX Manager & Designer
With a foundation in visual design and user experience, my career has evolved into a that of a design leader versed in all stages of product development. I'm known for thriving in ambiguity, a knack for technical spaces and genuine design leadership. My last role at Microsoft included crafting design strategy and experience visions for teams and enterprise products within Windows and Cloud & Enterprise.
My primary focus is product and brand strategy, platform design guidelines, standardizing engineering best practices, mentoring individuals and teams within organizations and managing multi-disciplinary UX teams.
Since October of 2017 I have been enjoying time with my family and growing my side-gig turned e-commerce business at Moon & Moth Magic Co. Now that it is established and thriving, I'm ready to set forth on my next adventure.
The best experiences are intelligent, performant systems that users may never see. I employ a reductionist approach to visuals and interactions.
Good design requires insight into a user's motivations and behaviors. Not just the "what" people do - but the "why". It is essential to leverage research in every stage of design, from competitive score-carding to usability and telemetry analysis.
How can you move fast and not break things? Large, cross-product, multi-disciplinary product teams require defined, but flexible, systems for design best-practices, patterns and methods. Establishing norms and publishing guidelines rallies a team and accelerates their ability to ship fast and not break things.
